Abby Leibowitz

Abby Leibowitz

Age: 26
Executive vice president, Call Experts
• Call Experts is a 24/7 local call center and answering service that was founded in 1982. Leibowitz oversees all finances, legal framework and organizational structure, and the operation of each department. She also ensures that the company remains on track for growth.

Community involvement
• Call Experts provides free service to several local charities, such as the Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, Lowcounty Children’s Center, People Against Rape and the Ronald McDonald House. It provides 24/7 phone support for all of these organizations so those in need can be connected with people to help them. The company also offers services to the Cooper River Bridge Run and other local events run by nonprofit companies. Leibowitz said her father set the precedent for her to help local charities by making it a big part of the company’s culture since Day 1.

What made you select your chosen profession? It selected me! I became even more intrigued when I realized that our company facilitates most of the behind-the-scenes communication throughout the Lowcountry.

Favorite vacation spot: Still looking! Right now, it is along the Cinque Terra coast in Italy.

First job: As a transcriptionist for my Dad’s answering service at age 10 — just for fun!

Favorite hour of the day and why: 11:43 a.m.: enough into the day to know what it will hold, but still early enough to get a lot done.
